Now I ain't no butcher, no butcher's son,

'Cause I'm a all-around man, oh I'm a all-around man,
I'm a all-around man, I can do most anything that comes my hand

Now I ain't no plumber, no plumber's son,
I can do your screwin' till the plumber man comes
'Cause I'm a all-around man, oh I'm a all-around man,
I'm a all-around man, I can do most anything that comes my hand

Now I ain't no miller, no miller's son,
I can do your grindin' 'til the miller man comes
'Cause I'm a all-around man, oh I'm a all-around man,
I'm a all-around man, I can do most anything that comes my hand

Now I ain't no milkman, no milkman's son,
I can pull your titties 'til the milkman comes
'Cause I'm a all-around man, oh I'm a all-around man,
I'm a all-around man, I can do most anything that comes my hand

Now I ain't no spring-man1, no spring-man's son,
I can bounce your springs 'til the spring-man comes
'Cause I'm a all-around man, oh I'm a all-around man,
I'm a all-around man, I can do most anything that comes my hand

Now I ain't no auger-man2, no auger-man's son,
I can blow your hole 'til the auger-man comes
'Cause I'm a all-around man, oh I'm a all-around man,
I'm a all-around man, I can do most anything that comes my hand

recording of June 4 1931

from Banana in Your Fruit Basket (Yazoo 1064), copyright notice

I got a brand new skillet1, I got a brand new lead,
all I need is a little woman, just to burn my bread
I'm tellin' you baby, I sure ain't gonna deny,
let me put my banana in your fruit basket, then I'll be satisfied

Now, I got the washboard, my baby got the tub,
we gonna put 'em together, gonna rub, rub, rub
And I'm tellin' you baby, I sure ain't gonna deny,
let me put my banana in your fruit basket, then I'll be satisfied

Mmmmm, gonna let my banana spoil now,
mama, gonna let my banana spoil, now
I can see the way you carryin' on,
you don't want my banana no how

Now I got the dasher2, my baby got the churn3,
we gonna churn, churn, churn until the butter come
Then I'm tellin' you baby, I sure ain't gonna deny,
let me put my banana in your fruit basket, then I'll be satisfied

Now my baby's got the cloth, and I got the needle,
we gonna stitch, stitch, stitch, 'til we both will feel it
Then I'm tellin' you baby, I sure ain't gonna deny,
let me put my banana in your fruit basket, then I'll be satisfied

Mmmmm, gonna let my banana ruin, now,
mmmmm, gonna let my banana ruin, now
I can see the way you carryin' on,
you don't want my banana no how

Now my baby's got the meat, and I got the knife,
I'm gonna do her cuttin', this bound to solve my life
And I'm tellin' you baby, I sure ain't gonna deny,
let me put my banana in your fruit basket, then I'll be satisfied

Don't Mash My Digger So Deep

soundclip


by probably Bo Carter (Armenter "Bo" Chatmon)
recording of October 15 1936

from Banana in Your Fruit Basket (Yazoo 1064), copyright notice

Baby if you don't like my peaches, baby please don't-cha touch my tree
Baby and if you don't love my peaches, baby please don't touch my tree
And if you don't want me to have your potatoes, don't mash my digger1 down so deep

Say's when I use my digger, I use it in different ways,
I dig potatoes for these women, both night and day

Baby if you don't like my peaches, baby please don't-cha touch my tree
Baby and if you don't love my peaches, baby please don't touch my tree
And if you don't want me to have your potatoes, don't mash my digger down so deep

Says when I get to use my digger, I use it like I should,
the women all cryin' your old digger, ya know, it digs and feels so good

Baby if you don't like my peaches, baby please don't-cha touch my tree
Baby and if you don't love my peaches, baby please don't touch my tree
And if you don't want me to have your potatoes, don't mash my digger down so deep

Says when I get to use my digger, I use to the side and up and down,
I can dig your potatoes better than any man in this town

Baby if you don't like my peaches, baby please don't-cha touch my tree
Baby and if you don't love my peaches, baby please don't touch my tree
And if you don't want me to have your potatoes, don't mash my digger down so deep

Sometimes it takes three inches to dig for 'tatoes, sometimes it takes four,
when I find 'em deep, you know, I mash it down some more

Baby if you don't like my peaches, baby please don't-cha touch my tree
Baby and if you don't love my peaches, baby please don't touch my tree
And if you don't want me to have your potatoes, don't mash my digger down so deep

__________
Note 1: digger, a tool for digging in the ground.

My Pencil Won't Write No More

soundclip


by probably Bo Carter (Armenter "Bo" Chatmon)
recording of June 4 1931

from Banana in Your Fruit Basket (Yazoo 1064), copyright notice

Now listen here folks, there's one thing sure,
my old pencil won't write no more
Because the lead's all gone, oh the lead's all gone,
oh the lead's all gone, the pencil won't write no more

I lay down at my bed, just to write a line,
I could feel my old pencil droppin' forward all the time
Because the lead's all gone, oh the lead's all gone,
oh the lead's all gone, the pencil won't write no more

I gets outta my bed, down on the floor,
I was worryin' 'bout my old pencil won't write no more
Because the lead's all gone, oh the lead's all gone,
oh the lead's all gone, the pencil won't write no more

I met a hot mama, I wanted to love her so bad,
I lost all the lead in my pencil I had
Now, the lead's all gone, oh the lead's all gone,
oh the lead's all gone, the pencil won't write no more

I hugged and kissed her, all last night,
it wasn't nothin' doin', my old pencil wouldn't write
Because the lead's all gone, oh the lead's all gone,
oh the lead's all gone, the pencil won't write no more

You sure can tell when a man's pencil is wrong,
his mama's always, shiftin' from home
Because the lead's all gone, oh the lead's all gone,
oh the lead's all gone, the pencil won't write no more

Now listen here man, you ought to know,
can't write for that woman you have to let her go
Because the lead's all gone, oh the lead's all gone,
oh the lead's all gone, the pencil won't write no more
